So we’ve decided to give a Kings of War campaign a go, our first planned date is coming up this weekend and I’m pretty pumped to lay waste across this campaign with my Abyssal Dwarves. I’ll be posting each turn with it’s results here as we go, so to start, this is the Turn 0 post. The back story is simple, the Orcs hate the cold and have pried their way out of hiding, complaining that it’s “really cold out here, we should probably go kill stuff”. The region is well aware of the whiney Orcs and decided to take up arms in defense of their land.
Turn 0 – Starting Locations
Green = Kingdom of Men
Orange = Orcs
Purple = Vacant Ruins
Blue = Abyssal Dwarves
Red = Dwarves
Look for more updates after this weekend!

This is a first for me, I’ve never built and painted a land raider. That mostly has to do with not playing lots of 40k over the years, I’m more of a fantasy player, if the posts here weren’t already giving that away. But this is the first one for me. It’s got a few minor details for me left to finish, but most of that’s touch ups, which is why you get this side of the land raider and not the other!
Side Shot of the door
I really like being able to switch between painting sci-fi and fantasy, they require a different approach and help break the monotony of painting the same type of figure over and over. When I lose ambition to finish one, I can swap over to the other, it usually works out pretty well. This army is coming along nicely, and now has a nice center piece for it…although I’ll probably end up doing another one in the future anyways.

I’ve been painting a lot of miniatures lately, not much terrain building, some games of kings of war here and there, and we’re planning to start a campaign soon, so the focus has been, paint stuff, since I have lots of stuff to paint! This is for sure the most of any Fantasy army I’ve ever painted in my life, which feels pretty swell, but also isn’t saying much since I have so many left to paint!
Abyssal Dwarf Mutated Dogs
I haven’t used the Mutated Dogs too many times, but now that they are painted, I don’t think I’ll have the choice. I have a habit of building my army lists around what I have painted, which usually means I have really poor army setups, but hey, at least it’s painted and looks neat on the table!
Abyssal Dwarf Halfbreed Champion
I used this champion in the last game, he was as much of a champion as his name describes, He’ll for sure be put into my army lists from now on!
